Rosetta Stone (, a provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, has announced an initiative program with the Lodi Unified School District to provide the Rosetta Stone TOTALe Course HD application for iPads, part of the TOTALe PRO solution, for English language learners.

The school district, in the Central Valley of Northern California, is one of the first districts to implement the TOTALe Course HD application. The Rosetta Stone TOTALe Course HD application for iPads was adopted by Lodi Unified School District for second- and third-grade English language learners whose language development had reached a plateau. Lodi Unified School District is utilizing a blended learning model that combines classroom instruction with individualized independent study using the full Rosetta Stone TOTALe solution, including the TOTALe Course HD application.

The district seeks to use the Rosetta Stone solution as a resource to build speaking confidence, increase classroom engagement and enhance learners’ proficiency in English, according to Superintendent Art Hand Jr. The TOTALe solution offers teachers the ability to create individualized classroom instruction based on each student’s ability, he adds.
